Prerequisites for Web Service Jobs

For Administrators

To deploy a job as a Web service, users must first deploy the job as a stored process. Accordingly, the prerequisites that are described in Prerequisites for Deploying a Job as a Stored Process must be met.
The Deploy as a Web Service wizard requires a URL to a Web Service Maker. This URL is available when administrators have installed one of the following:
  • SAS BI Web Services for .NET, which is part of SAS Integration Technologies
  • SAS Web Infrastructure Platform (WIP) and its associated components, which is included in the BI Server and EBI Server software

For Users

To use the Web service feature efficiently, you should be familiar with stored processes, XML tables, SAS XML libraries, Web services, and Web service clients. For more information about SAS XML libraries, see the SAS XML LIBNAME Engine: User's Guide.
